  1. Continuing my pattern of a resin alongside a vacform in this GB, the plan is to do this - photo from https://www.dgualdo.it/regs7/getpi.htm copyright Graeme Lovell & used only for reference. The kit is from Scaleworx and is intended as the LUH version as used by the South African AF Lots of parts cast in a pale blue resin and virtually bubble free, the vacform transparencies are nice and clear I shall have to have a good look at the instructions to figure out what all the parts are for, but I'm guessing some of th
  2. Long before I was came on and lowered the tone, I think there was a GB for anything that wasn't injection molded plastic. I'm proposing Vol II, maybe the No PIMP GB that's No Injection Molded Plastic. Or to be more positive about it, wood, etch, white metal card, vac-form ... Having just started on a resin car in the 10th Anniversary GB, I've discovered a whole new world, and I was inspired and awed by what @pheonix did with wood and metal in the floatplane GB. Plus all the amazing vac-form work. And I do have to card buildings that I have no reason to build unless a GB comes along
  3. Hi Chaps (and Lady as I see Heather is in this GB already) Plenty of scope for me here in this GB but I have decided to build the Unicraft Resin kit of a Fletcher FU-24 which I originally planned for the NZ Group build before defering after Andy Scotts untimely death in September. The kit I planned for this might make an appearance later in the 'Unarmed GB". This model combines 2 equally rare things, a New Zealand made kit and a New Zealand made plane. After WW11 top dressing land with fertiliser was big in New Zealand and huge numbers of war surplus Tiger Moths were used for the tas
  4. This is my Grumman GB year, so I'll build Attack Squadron's 1/48 F2F-1. The F2F was Grumman's second aircraft, after their FF-1. It first flew in 1933, serving in USN and USMC squadrons from 1935 through 1939, when they were replaced by the F3F. The F2F were then relegated to training; the last was stricken in 1943. The F2F inherited its manually cranked retractable landing gear from the FF-1; it was subsequently used in the F3F and F4F. Attack Squadron had outstanding resin kits.They became Arma Hobby and then went to the Injected Side. Some of their subjects, like their wonderfu
  5. I'm going to build a CA-28 Ceres. This was a development of the Wirraway, built using some Wirraway components (although not a lot was used without modification), and saw quite extensive use as a crop duster in Australia. I've been wanting to build one of these since I first saw the one at the Moorabbin air museum near Melbourne, finally got round to buying one - this is the LiftHere! resin kit in 1/72. Here's what you get in the box: Nicely cast resin, vacform canopy (and a spare), and a simple but good-looking decal sheet for the one option shown on the box.
  6. My first time joining a Group Build.... I’m going to build the Whirlybirds 1/72 Sikorsky HH-52A Sea Guard helicopter in USCG colors. It is my first resin kit, too! I figure a helicopter is a good way to start- build the fuselage, and you’re nearly finished! The kit looks nice, and fills an important gap in my collection of US Coast Guard subjects in 1/72. The HH-52 has never been kitted in injected plastic- the closest kit was a 1/48 scale kit of the Sikorsky S-62, the civilian version of the HH-52, by ITC in late 1950s. Tonight I opened up the kit
  7. Hi all. I've gone and done the unthinkable by doing a few commission builds for a work colleague. There are a lot of first (and lasts) with this build. I'll try to explain that in a bit. The kit has already been removed on numerous sites so I'll keep the summary brief. The kit is by Special Hobby that was released in association with Red Roo banner in 2016. Included are vacform canopies, photoetch details, white metal gear and a selection of five schemes./ Indications from other builds are the RAAF roundels are partly transparent. I might end up masking and
  8. As my workbench is getting empty again, I have decided to start a new kit and build another model of an aircraft I have flown. This time it is the turn of the ATR-72, which was the first aircraft I flew when I became an airline pilot for Cityflyer back in 2000. This kit will be my first foray into the world of resin, which is a completely new material for me to work with. All I really know is don't inhale the dust - is there anything else important I should know?! The kit is the 1/144 offering from F-RSIN. Here's the obligatory box shot: The con
  9. My first build for this GB is going to be the Magna 1/72nd scale Martin-Baker MB3 Fighter. The small Martin-Baker company had created some impression with their striking MB2 fighter, which although not selected for production had impressed those who tested it by its simplicity and how easy it was to maintain. When possible Spitfire Hurricane successors were being considered Specification F18/39 was issued to Martin-Baker for a new design that built on the experience of the MB2 but was to be more powerful. This was to be the MB3, originally to be powered by the Rolls-Royce Griffon, but this wa
  10. Edging onto the starting grid is this https://www.scalemates.com/kits/ma-scale-85-ferrari-712-m-1010--1072520 And now you know as much as me!! No, that's not right, because I know what it looks like And now you know as much as me! Quite possibly more, though I have heard of Andretti. I got this because it was bundled in with the Porsche 910 that I built for the 10th Anniversary GB. As such I didn't necessarily want it, and when I looked inside the box I wasn't sure I wanted to build it.. Largely because of what's not in the box, namely any instructio
  11. It seems I've been running my own private KUTA build for some reason, with the J-22 that stalled during the summer, the (also Swedish) Tunnan, and my long-standing Tactical Pod Regult builds all seeing some action over Christmas and the New Year. It's been nice doing some modelling again, but BOY have I gotten rusty! This is the excellent Planet Models 1:48 FFVS J-22A fighter, which most folks including me have probably never even heard of! It kind of looks like a Swedish take on the Fw.190 after a fashion. It's pretty much out of the box except for the gunsight, whic
  12. Here is my latest kit: the MiG-31 Firefox of the 1982 Clint Eastwood film. It's the Anigrand 1:144 resin kit. Keeping in mind the discrepancies between the full-scale film prop and the "flying models", the kit has some inaccuracies, namely around the undercarriage. The nosewheel should have twin wheels and the bays and doors are wrong but I left well alone and only cut the nose bay door in a way that made it closer to what we see in the film. My only other modifications were replacing the WW2-type seat with one from a Revell/Mark I F-104 kit (chopped down
  13. I just discovered this GB, so I hope it's ok to join in on the fun since its already started. I have a Planet Models 1/48 XF-10F-1 resin kit It's not a bad little kit, but will definitely be in need of some extra parts and work to make it shine like a new penny.
  14. One of my builds will be this resin Grob 120 originally released by Dujin several years ago and available again now from FSC Dujin. As usual with resin kits, not too many parts, two vacform canopies (fairly clear but will need tinting) and etched brass. The instructions are all in French but apart from working out what the etched brass parts are for I don't think that will be a problem. The major parts are quite nicely cast but the seats, undercarriage and prop are rough so some work/replacements needed there. Whilst the kit scheme is a
  15. Hi all. My entry will be this Accurate Armour, Hotspur Armoured Land Rover. A resin kit with a good smattering of PE. I've always known that the RUC use armoured Land Rovers to police Northern Ireland, but I hadn't really appreciated that there have been various iterations, with each new design providing enhanced protection. The Hotspur version saw service in the 1980s and incorporated additional armour plate fitted within the cabin (in order to maintain the civilian appearance as far as possible). EDIT: Please ignore all that follows - I'll
  16. ESK 2000B Gun Camera (4417 & 5133) 1:48 & 1:32 CMK by Special Hobby During WWII it was helpful to all combatants to be able to verify claimed kills in order to obtain accurate numbers on enemy attrition, which helped immensely with strategic planning. They were also used during training to help the novice pilots understand where they were going wrong, and could be strapped to airframes that otherwise couldn’t be used. The Germans used such devices, which could be mounted internally where there was space, or externally on smaller airframes. These sets de
  17. Here is the other Miles Magister Mk.I of Heroes Models in 1:144 scale that I finished this week. It represents R1918 of 312 (Czechoslovak) Sqn, RAF, UK, 1941. This is a delightful resin kit with the windscreens made from thin plastic sheet and the exhaust pipe from plastic rod. Obviously some work is involved and for more information see my WIP in the Kampfgruppe144 forum: http://www.kampfgruppe144.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=7326. As with the other kit, it was built OOB with my only addition being the underwing pitot. I'm aware the main legs are in the extended
  18. With the mail dragging its feet I felt like something quick to build while waiting, and luckily I had this in the stash. I doubt I would have ever even thought about buying two if it was only one to the pack, but since it wasn't I didn't exactly get much choice. But now that I have them I may as well build both, one in everyday puttering about mode and the other one stripped down and buttoned up for stealth. As for the specific ships K31 HMS Visby has a bit more potentially going on, so that'll be the "bells and whistles one", and for the sneaky one I
  19. From 2 years ago, another toilet-equipped flying wonder. SBS' Latecoere 28 is a welcome addition to the slowly growing line of civil options provided by smaller (in size, but big in brains) manufacturers. SBS releases of the different versions of the DH88 racer and the Farman F.190 (and other subjects) are to commend in every sense. As said in the WIP article, you could build this kit as it is, but I decided to go a few extra yards to tweak it a bit and add some things. The "Comte de la Vaulx" (in honor of a FAI preeminent member), flown by Mermoz, realized the first
  20. Unusually for me I planned my years intended builds by looking at the Britmodeller group builds for the 2021 and worked out which ones I wanted to join. So here is my second non injection GB entry - a F-RSIN resin kit of the lovely post war Languedoc airliner in Air France colours. My plan hopefully coming together later in the year with another 144 airliner for the French Fancy GB, again in Air France colours. So here we have it - simple looking kit with minimal number of parts Box and decals Fuselage and winds - two pieces - bonus!
  21. Here is one of a pair of kits I finished this week. It's a Miles Magister Mk.I of Heroes Models in 1:144 scale. It represents 1208 of the Força Aérea Portuguesa, at Base Aérea Nº 2, Ota, Portugal, in 1952. Portugal received 10 Magisters in 1946 serving under the Aeronáutica Militar. When this merged with the Aviação Naval to form the Força Aérea Portuguesa in July 1952, 10 new serial numbers were allocated even though several had been withdrawn form service. The Magister was officially withdrawn from service that same year although there are reports of one still being used from
  22. This came from out of the blue for me - a nice spring surprise. Print scale has issued a resin kit, the boxes have been sent to Hannants already according to their FB page: https://m.facebook.com/printscale/ To be issued in 1/48 and 1/144 too
  23. Star Wars Star Destroyer Engine Bells & Shield Generators (10120-1/5000 for Bandai) 1:5000 GreenStrawberry Star Destroyers. It’s just occurred to me that despite their name, they can’t even destroy planets, which was why the Death Star was created - as Alderaan found out to their cost. Still, it’s a cool name. Apart from Tantive IV, known at the Blockade Runner in the olden days, the Star Destroyer was the first ship to hit the screen at the beginning of Star Wars: Episode IV. Bandai have the Far Eastern kit rights to the Star Wars franchise, but those kit
  24. Morning people. With the Challenger and Humber at home awaiting painting and accessories, I need another build for the lunchtimes while at work. I purchased this and loads of other afv's from a club member who wants to see this Matador built, so here goes. Nice sturdy box and a pic of what it should look like. What the heck am I supposed to do with this? It's got an inventory list if you know what things are. The pictures are very dark and not useful at all but I suppose I'll muddle through. The resin but whether it's all there... I'll
  25. AS promised over on the build thread HERE some pics of the finished beastie are provided: It was a fairly problematic build, but I'm glad to add her to the collection. Thanks for looking, Ed
